The following interesting article
concerning the approaching visit to
I America of three hundred of the Euro
j pean members of the Iro^ and Steel
I Institute is taken from London En- |
gineering. the leading foreign publi?
cation of its class:
In the course of nest month more
than three hundred European mem?
bers of the Ironi and Steel Institute
will proceed to America to hold their
summer meeting, and to take pan in
that of the American Institute of
Mining Engineers. The Verein Deut?
sche Eisenhuttelaute have also been
invited to be present, and, conse?
quently, tho three great irbn-produc
ing countries of the world will be rep?
resented by their leading technical
societies, while individuals froai all
parts of the world will add to the cos?
mopolitan character of the gathering.
The occurrence is in every way
notable. It testifies to the widening
of national sympathies, and to the
breaking down of the old trade exclu
siveness which had decended to us
from the ancient guilds.
There was a time, when * * * In?
stead ot beingteceived with cordiality,
they would have n ceded, for their own
safety, to have dismissed the object
of their visit, and to have resorted to
stealth and duplicity to carry out
their object. Now all this is changed.
Not only are the visitors welcomed by
their own craft, but ail the cognate
societies join in the reception. The
American Instituteof Civil Engineers,
the American Institut.- of Mechanical
Engineers and the American Associa?
tion of Charcoal Ironworkers arc all
represented on the committee. Pos?
sibly the evidence of cordiality will
not end her.-, far it is whispered that
the American nation, acting through
the President, may officially greet the
coming guests. * * *
Three da\s .ire to be devoted to the
reading of papers, all of which will be
offered by Americans.
The papers deal with: (1) American
blast furnace yields; (2) testing ma?
terials of construction in the United
States: (?!) the manufacture of steel in
the United States; (4) th?> Thompson
electric welding process; (3) the man?
ufacture of spirally welded steel pipe*
in the United State-: (CJ the develop?
ment of the iron manufactun s of Vir-"
ginia: (7) the use of water gas in the '
United States; (8) the coke industry
of the United States; (0) process in the
manufacture of war materials in the '
United States; (10) composition end 1
wearing qualities of steel rails.
Two of the afternoons of the three
days referred to (October 1, 2,:}?v. i 1 be
devoted to excursions and other en?
tertainments, and one to the proceed- .
Ings in connection with the unveiling '
of the statue of the late Mr. Alexander
I, Holley.
On Saturday. October 4th, the vis- ,
itors will leave New York en route for
Philadelphia, where they will spend .
Sunday and Monday, a number of the
local manufactories being laid open to
their inspection. On Tuesday they
will travel by special train to Le- <
banon, Pennsylvania, to visit the fa- :
ntous Cornwall iron mines, while
those who wish it will inspect, the
plant of the Pennsylvania Steel Com?
pany at Steelton. A long night jour- i
uey will then take them to Pittsburg,
where they will arrive on Wednesday
afternoon, stopping by the wayat Al- ?
toona, the site of the shops of the i
Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and
at Johnstown, i he scene of the great
flood of ISsj'J. Four days will be spent
at Pittsburg, and. from a technical ?'
point of view, will probably be the 1
most interesting of the entire period.
Th's is the focus of the American steel !
and iron trade, and is endowed with
very great natural advantages.
"It is located in the middle of a rich
mineral region, which not only teems
with coal and iron, but spouts forth I
oil and gas and salt in a way which (
renders it one of the wonders of the
world. The irons of. the celebrated
Juniata regions are close to PittBburg,
while to the west are those of Kastern
Ohio. But the crowning glory ol '.
Pittsburg, is its natural gas. Other ?
lands have coal and iron and railway, <
but none other has such an abundant, 1
cheap and easily utilizable fuel. 1
An international meeting of the va- '
rious societies is to be held ;it Pitts- I
burg, when papers will be offered on i
behalf of the iron and steel institute 1
by Sir N. Barnaby, Mr. A. E. Seaton,
and possibly by Sir Lowthain Bell.
On Sunday night, October 12, the i
visitors will leave for Chicago, where i
they will spend Monday and Tuesdsy. I
visiting the local iron and steel works i
and manufacturing establishments.'
On Tuesday, October 11. the party i
will divide into two bodies, which i
will proceed north and south respect?
ively. It will be a somewhat difficult
matter to many to make the choice.
On the one hand there will be the
beauty of the Lakes and the wonders
of Niagara, rendered still more charm
ing by the advent of the Indian sum?
mer, while on the other hand there
will be the iron and coal fields of the
Southern Sta'es, which present such
tempting outlets for capital. Many a
man desirous to lind-ouenings for his
children will choose the latter trip in
order to decide whether they cannot
do better in the new world than the
old. Even those who have not such
responsibilities may go in search of
investments which will pay better in?
terest than ventures of the" same kind
in England.
The northern journey will be di?
rected to the iron and copper mines
of the Lake Superior district, andf
will include Iron Mountain, Michigan,
*???? lie f-rogebic range, the
CaluuWt, iieeJa and Tamarack mines,
the iron mines of Marquette district,
the Saulr. Ste. Marie locks and Ni?
agara Falls. Thence the party will
proceed to New York, where they
will arrive on Saturday, October 25,
having spent nine nights in "the cars.
The Southern section will visit Bir?
mingham, Shelby and Anniston, Ala.;
Chattanooga, Tenn.: Middlesborough,
Ky.; Knoxville, Tenn.: Pocahontas,
Roanoke and Luray, Virginia; "Wash?
ington and New York, arriving there
on Monday, October 27. Eight nights
will be spent in the cars on this trip.
It is to be doubted if any technical
traveller ever had such a magnificent
programme laid before him. Bynoi
possibility could a private individual, I
however famous or well introduced,'
hope to see one-fourth Of what will
be freely laid open to the members 61'
the Iron and Steel Institute. At every
stoppage they will llnd themselves ex?
pected, and preparations made for
their entertainment and instruction.
Processes will be carried out in their
entirety for their edification; feats of
casting, welding and rolliug will be
performed before them, and the re?
sources of the country will be laid
open to their inspection.
"We say this from our knowledge of
the heartiness and comprehensiveness
of American hospitality, and not from
any official information on the sub?
ject. Those who visit America for the
first time will also probably bo more
astonished at the kindliness of their
reception than at anything else.
They will land as strangers and will
find themselves welcomed as friends,
while they cannot fail to bring buck
the liveliest feelings of gratitude and
friendship. We have no doubt that
i the visit will lie the cause of many mi
j improvement in our manufactures,
land that it will do a great deal to
I cement the friendship of the two coun
I tries.

?Suspected of Uurfflnry.
Charlie Beverly, a white man who
works at the brick and tile yards,
wi'.s robbedjlast night of an $18 silver
watch in S. P. Wilmeth's bar. on
Railroad avenue. Two negroes, a
man and a woiuan, were arrested sus?
pected of the robbery.
Officer Welhlon, who arrested the
man, afterwards found the watch and
got sufficient evidence to prove that
the man stole it, whereupon the
woman was released. Soon after she
was locked up, two negroes appeared
demanding her release, declaring that
she was innocent and the man guilty.
Watchman Bailey informed them
that he had no power to release her.
They left with some reluctance, and
about 12 o'clock returned and said
they were determined to have her
out. The sight of Watchman Bai?
ley's revolver made them change
their minds and they left again.
Soon afterwards the TlMKS reporter
found the watchman, with his re?
volver in hand, "setting for game."
The man arrested is a desperate
looking character, and a heavy pair
of knocks were found in his possess?

The Winston boys went out to Riv?
erside Park yesterday delermined to
win the last game and break even
with Roanoke on tiie series. A glance
I at the score shows that they succeeded \
' with a vengeance.
The game was extremely interesting j
! frum start to fiulsh and a number of
' good plays were made, the b autiful
J running catch of Kirby being worthy ;
[of especial notice. McGain, the pet
pitfherof the Winston's, surprised his;
"run and slide" brethren byknockii g
the ball over the right held fence for '
a homo run.
Steve Wigmore wns the first Roan?
oke man to come before McGain, and
he received a base on balls. Ford
reached first on an error. Irving
Brodie struck out, Oapt. Wigmore
and Ford moved up a base on a pa ? e I
ball, but Rosenthal hit to center Held
and Steve was doubled up at the i
plate. McGain got a life ai Qrsl > u
Widgins' wild throw. Lanier struck
out. Farrell knocked a little one and |
.McGain was thrown out at the i lati .
The next man was a victim.
In the second Kirby reached firs
an error, went to second before the
ball was recovered, and third ;
home on passed balls. Quarles, Do
and Widgin struck Out. Winston did
nothing. Roanoke, 1;.Winston. 0.
Nothing further in the way of run
getting took place until the sixth inn
ing, when Winston scored o e, tying
the score. In the sixth, Steve
more was out at first, Ford hit to j
right, Brodie flew out to second,
entlud reached first on a error, and
Kirby got a life also on an illegal de- '
livery filling the bases. It was now
Quarles' time to do the work, but!
was not equal to the emergency and '
he popped up a fly that was easily
captured. Keeley struck out, McGn
reached first on an error and
second. Lanier struck out, Farrell hit
safely bringing in McGain, Benn
died at first. Roanoke, 1; Winston, I.
In the seventh roupd Roanok

safely and stole second, he was follow?
ed by Wade who hit to right brin rb

ftrier Biographies and Thiimh Nail
Sketches ot (he Carolina Champions.
There is some good base ball mate?
rial in the Winston team,-which com?
pleted its series of games with Roan?
oke yesterday, and it is highly cred?
itable to the home men that they held
the Winstons down so well. They
had won the championship of North
and South Carolina, without losing a
game this season until coining to
A. K. McGain, the main pitcher, is a
sharp-eyed little fellow, apparently
not the man for the box: but his de?
livery Friday convinced the Roanokes
that he can pitch ball, and was much
praised by the spectators.
J. J. Keely, the catcher, is of line
appearance physically, and catches
the heaviest pitcher with ease. A. ball
had not passed him tin season before
the games with Roanoke.
Farrell is a fine second baseman,
and is one of the best batters of the
McGain. Farrell and Kelley, all
made creditable records on the Balti?
more Unions last season.
Luther Bennett is the youngest
mao,being qjly 18 years of age, and is
one of the best, He has a record as a
catcher and batter, which were veil
sustained by his beautiful batting
and fine catching here. He made the
only run for Winston in the first two
games, and his home run won the
victory Friday. He was for two sea?
sons catcher for the Charlotte team,
which was champion of the State un?
til this year, and he wears a medal
for the best batting record on that
nine last year.
J. Jones is the meaty, man of the
team. Sta'wart and broad-shouldered
wth the muscle of a John L. Sullivan,
he is generally a fine batter, but has
injured his record since tackling Bro?
die. He is a jolly good fellow, popu?
lar with the boys, and gets in good
work on first base. He is a native of
Charlie Jones is a genuine tar-heel,
and one of the best fellows on the
team. He fs a fine fielder, always
throwing the ball direct, and is a fair
batter. He pitches a good game and
is one. of the best runners. He has
been on the Winston.nine for two sea?
N. D. Benner is a fine fielder, a nd a
pitcher Winston counts on. He was
with the University of Virginia team
on their tour, during which they won
a number of games.

T. Lanier is anot her fine fielder, al?
ways taking in a IIy. lie is alto one
of Winston's best batters and batch?
ers, a line runner, and in fact a man
to count on anyw here you.put him on
a ball ground. He is a native of Ox?
ford, N. 0., but has been on the Win?
ston team for two seasons.
Those who don't know might take
J. E. Gray for the dude of the crowd;
hut the fact is, there are no dudes
among them. Mr. Gray came along
as a substitute, but is a good fielder.
He is a handsome youngfellow, andif
lie sticks to the diamond will make
his mark as a ball player.
The team came under the mauage
ment of Mr. W. P. Baity; one of Win?
ston's most popular dry goods nier
1 chants. Mr. Baity was "called/ vay.
as noted in yesterday's TimiJ , and
Mr. W.Y. Meroneywas left in charge.
The team played good ball while here,
making a favorable impression, and
I were well pleased with Roanoke and
the courtesies of the home ream.
